thumbs up for Feeling Feelings, Sail Away Sweet Sister and It's A Beautiful Day.  BBC Sessions?  Nice, but we want it all!!!

What about the live tracks? They sound ace!

Action This Day has a good balance between Roger and Freddie, vocally speaking. Roger sounds a bit muffled on the MK version, for example.

Sheer Heart Attack is a rocking one. Great.

Can't wait for these releases.

Not up for live snippets, tbh.  Especially ones from previously released albums.  If they can put a couple of live ones out, then they can put the whole show out...they know we'd buy it :)

Wow, those were great to have a wee listen to. Unfortunately Thistleboy, QPL also know we''l buy these CD's too with only very few extras so why bother going all out with live releases? Still, I'm really looking forward to the release, let's just hope the polished up sound from Hyde park is a sign!

Thank you very much for the heads up, silver_salmon! QPL knows the ocasional fan will probably buy and they certainly know we, the "creepy" fans (as Roger says)  will buy it. Anyway, I'm very excited with these, even if they contain so little new stuff, it is still something. I need my Queen fix :). I am particularly happy with Flash Gordon. I was affraid we'd get a couple of Ah-Ah-Capelas. ;)

Cheers,

Ogre-

The Battle Theme on Deep Cuts 2 is abit dissapointing. The NOTW seems like the best value for purchase

Is it me or is the live version of Calling All Girls a different mix from the one on the Live at the Bowl DVD?

Awesome!
While I think DSMN could've done with some more guitar, I can see why they ended up removing the guitar shown here from the final mix. It just doesn't sit right.

OMG! The long-lost guitars on Don't Stop Me Now sound superb!! Can't believe they took them out in the first place!

The Flash Gordon extra tracks sound very promising! I also expected a stripped down version of Football Fight but this appears to be a whole different take incl piano. Great!
I also hope the booklet will tell us which take we get of Feelings Feelings.

=============

It's hard to tell because the samples are in mono.  We'll have to wait and see.

I hope they didn't change a thing, as the version from the DVD menu is absolutely perfect.

Once you actually have the tracks out in front of you to check out, you realize how utterly lame --  overall -- these deluxe editions are. I am, of course, VERY happy and excited to have the true rarities here, like Feelings, Feelings, DSMN, Dreamer's Ball, The Kiss, Football Fight, Sail Away Sweet Sister, Beautiful Day..but that's just seven tracks on five CD's!  I mean, seriously, how could they not include the COMPLETE NOTW BBC Sessions.. It's mind boggingly inane. It makes absolutely NO SENSE! I just don't get it.

It's so aggravating...and the inclusion of live tracks already released, more than once in some cases,  is utterly stupid and shameful...and advertised as 'rare bonus tracks'??? Come on!!!

I guess I shouldn't complain and just be happy that we've gotten the above mentioned true rartities, the few pieces on the first set of releases and -good lord- the De Lane Lea demos complete..can you imagine if they only put on 1/2 of those..?

Still, these deluxe editions could have been and SHOULD have been much, much better....so sad...

'Sail Away Sweet Sister' and 'Dreamer's Ball' sound class, IABD sounds like it's missing something, which was obviously found on MIH.

Of course they could have been much better, but we now probably have the definitive Jazz album, in terms of sound quality. In fact, all albums have been improved a lot.

Also, A Beautiful Day is really a demo. A lovely demo. John did a great job in making it a complete track. It has to be said.
